SAN DIEGO -- Police believe a tagger fell to his death from a downtown building Friday morning.

The man was found lying on the ground below the structure just across the street from San Diego Police headquarters on 15th and E streets.

"The death is probably an accidental death," SDPD Sgt. Matthew Botkin said.

Botkin explained that investigators found the man directly below a break in the building's roof, which he likely fell through while tagging. Spraypaint cans could be seen near the man's body.

Officers said the tagger had a severe head injury but the medical examiner was called to officially determine the cause of his death.

Police briefly shut down traffic on 15th Street between Broadway and E Street for the death investigation.
